Organic, GMO-Free & All-Natural Claims

Posted by Rebekah Wicke on 12/13/16

sunflower fuchs non gmo trends

It’s no secret that Organic & GMO-Free products have taken the food industry by storm in the past couple of years. “Organic,” “Non-GMO,” and “All-Natural” claims have been popping up on everything from salsa to frozen foods to cake mixes and even snacks. But why are these products so in demand right now?

Let’s take a closer look at what’s driving this trend:

  • Millennials, of course! Millennials have had a huge impact on the food industry in the past few years. Compared to older generations, millennials are more concerned about health, sustainability, and where their food comes from.
  • The number of snacks with Organic and GMO-Free claims has seen substantial growth. This has been driven by Millennial Parents, as they seek out "healthier" snacks for their children.non gmo fuchs trend alerts
  • People, in general, are becoming more conscious eaters, and they’re far more concerned about where their food is coming from and what chemicals might be in their food than ever before. That’s driving a lot of the shift towards Organic and Non-GMO products.
  • People perceive Organic and Non-GMO products to be healthier than other products. As people are becoming more health conscious, they’re constantly seeking out products that not only taste great, but that they think are better for them.

The rise of Organic and Non-GMO products has been impacting the industry in several ways. Retailers and suppliers alike have been responding by introducing new products that meet these standards and by coming up with their own lists of acceptable and unacceptable ingredients.

Here at Fuchs, we’ve seen a major increase in requests from our customers for Organic and GMO-Free products, and we expect to see this trend continue. Fortunately, our R&D team has expertise in meeting our customers’ regulatory requirements. Not only that, but our facility is certified for processing organic ingredients, OTATradeMemberLogoand we’re a proud member of the Organic Trade Association.

Fuchs’ Fall 2016 Flavor Insights

Posted by Rebekah Wicke on 8/18/16

fuchs flavor trend insights pumpkin spice latte

It’s time to break out your Halloween decorations and plan a trip to your local pumpkin patch – fall 2016 is upon us!

Here at Fuchs, fall means the resurgence of some of our favorite seasonal autumn flavors and an exciting introduction to new trending flavors. Need help navigating seasonal offerings? Look no further. We put the “season” in seasoning!

Here are our predictions for fall 2016’s top seasonal flavors:

Maple on the Risefuchs flavor trend insights maple

Although maple isn’t strictly a fall flavor, expect to see an increase in maple flavors in the coming months. We’re expecting maple to be bigger than ever in the coming year.

The best part about maple? It pairs well with other flavors, making spectacular combinations like maple bacon, maple chipotle, and maple brown sugar. It’s versatile in other ways too – it tastes good on a variety of bases, like cookies, popcorn, pretzels, and sausage.

Comfort Foodsfuchs flavor trends insights chili

Drawing on inspiration from home cooking, these flavors will rise in popularity as fall rolls around. Warm, herby flavors typically begin picking up steam in the market around early September and continue to rise in popularity until after the holidays are over.

Don’t be surprised to see savory flavors inspired by dishes like pot roast, butternut squash soup, chili with cornbread, and chicken pot pie. Not only will dishes like these be offered on restaurant menus as LTOs, but they’ll also make appearances in frozen meals, canned soup, and even snacks at the grocery store.

Yummy Seasonal Beverages

Welcome back, pumpkin spice latte. The flavors of favorite fall beverages will be making their yearly comeback – but not just in beverage form. With pumpkin spice lattes being one of America’s favorite seasonal beverages, it’s no surprise that the flavor has made its way into snack foods and desserts. In addition to pumpkin spice, expect to see plenty of other coffee and beverage inspired flavors, like vanilla chai and hot chocolate, on your favorite snacks this fall.

Indulging Your Sweet Toothfuchs flavor trend insights apple pie

Who doesn’t love dessert? Flavors inspired by fall desserts will also be gaining in popularity this season – think apple pie, pumpkin pie, spice cake, snickerdoodle, gingerbread, caramel apple. Expect these desserts on restaurant menus this fall – and their flavors in bakery items and snacks at the grocery stores.

Sweet seasonal flavors like these tend to pair really well with popcorn. And who knows? You may even see them on ice cream!

Gearing Up for Thanksgiving

In addition to pumpkin pie, don’t be surprised to see other Thanksgiving-related dishes popping up on restaurant menus and in retail. Cranberry flavors, inspired by cranberry sauce, are growing in popularity, as are sweet potatoes. These flavors will surely make their way into your life well before Thanksgiving.

Moving Forward with Fuchs

At Fuchs, we have seasonings inspired by every season to help you figure out your next LTO or seasonal product line – and the taste trend research to back it up.

And Fuchs’ innovation doesn’t stop there. Our R&D team will develop custom seasoning solutions for your needs!

Southeast Asian Inspiration

Posted by Rebekah Wicke on 10/03/16

We’ve been inspired by Southeast Asian flavors – and you will be too!

It’s no secret – Southeast Asian cuisine has been taking foodservice by storm. With Southeast Asian inspired dishes popping up on restaurant menus, it also comes as no surprise that Southeast Asian flavors have been making appearances in the grocery store, in everything from snacks to frozen meals. So for us, it made sense to develop a new collection of Southeast Asian inspired seasonings.

fuchs asian inspirationAlways Interesting Asian

Our taste trend research shows that flavors inspired by dishes like Thai Coconut Curry, Malaysian Rendang, and Vietnamese Pho are trending. And the Southeast Asian trend isn’t fizzling out anytime soon! Asian flavors in general have been increasing in popularity over the past few years, and Southeast Asian flavors are no exception.

New and exciting ethnic flavors are highly in demand – especially with millennials, who are driving snack food growth. We’ve found that now more than ever, people are interested in trying foods from around the world. They’re also more interested than ever in having the specific origin of the food or flavor called out in the name. That’s why we’re seeing so many more Thai curries on menus and in the grocery store aisle.

Attraction on Many Levels

So what is the allure of Southeast Asian food, besides it being exotic? It’s flavorful, for one. fuchs asian inspiration 2Aromatic herbs and citrus are two main components of Southeast Asian cuisine. It often times uses familiar ingredients, like peanuts for example, in unfamiliar ways. It’s also relatively healthy, with many of the dishes loaded with vegetables and sometimes fruit. Seafood is a staple in the Southeast Asian diet, due to its geographic location. Fish sauce is an integral part of many recipes, similar to the way that soy sauce would be used in dishes in other parts of Asia.

Here at Fuchs, we’ve captured the vibrant flavors of Southeast Asian cuisine in several of our custom seasoning blends. Drawing inspiration from authentic dishes from Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and more, these seasonings are sure to be a hit!

And Fuchs’ innovation doesn’t stop there. Our R&D team will develop custom seasoning solutions for your needs!
